Spints Alehouse was out last stop on our Dishcrawl adventure. You can read about all our other stops HERE, HERE and HERE. When we arrived at Spints I was really hoping for something sweet to end my night. The culture and vibe of Spints is Germany meets Portland. Owner Alyssa Gregg serves up German food with a Portland twist. Her goal was to lighten up and change customers minds about the reputation of German food being heavy. The menu is ever changes seasonally and is short and sweet. I like a short menu so it doesn’t take me forever to decide. It also usually means that a lot of thought and quality ingredients went into each dish.
Gregg also smokes her own sausages in house which I hear is a must try! I guess I will just have to come back! The overall vibe of the restaurant is warm and mascuile. When you walk in you may mistake this restaurant for a bar. People mainly come here to drink but the food is delicious too. They have a small room off to the right where a family could sit and enjoy the fare.
Here is what we tried:
Flourless Espresso Torte
Apple Bread Pudding (fruit changes seasonally)
All the dessert’s were rich an fabulous. I wish I had a piece of that bread pudding right now!
